Our award-winning approach brings together architecture, urban design, landscape architecture & the environment.
We create value for clients through quality design for development, obtaining Consents and producing places of distinction. Our integrated proposals combine design, environmental consultancy and consultation. At Public Inquiry we successfully demonstrate rigour by careful evidence-based design, carrying this thinking through to development completion.
University of Southampton Science Park
Acting for USSP, Rummey Design is pleased to be commissioned to act as masterplanner to provide a 25-year vision to guide the development of the Science Park. Leading a multi-disciplinary team of planners, transport engineers, quantity surveyors and development specialists, and building on Rummey Design's track record at Oxford Science Park and a biotech Science Park, this complex brief requires proposals for an improved public realm and tenant environment; a more sustainable, less car dependent Science Park including potential new buildings, demolitions and refurbishments, pedestrian/cycle access, planning and development strategies, together with a costed and phased investment and implementation strategy.
Funtley Road South, Hampshire
Rummey Design has been successful, at Planning Inquiry, of gaining Outline Consent for 125 houses and Community Park together with community buildings, infrastructure, water attenuation and landscape regeneration proposals. Rummey Design's role was as Expert Witness and masterplanner for landscape, urban design and architecture, with client Reside. The Inspector's considerations ranged from parking strategy to the principle of development and landscape impact but these objections were all overcome to produce a landscape-led approach to the creation of a number of new neighbourhoods providing much-needed housing in the district.
Medway River, Kent
Acting as landscape architects, Rummey Design, with other consultants, has received planning consent for a major new site at Strood in Kent for developers Redrow. This 225 dwelling second stage is part of an important development regenerating the Medway riverside, close to Rochester Castle.
Borrow Farm, Surrey
Consents for two planning applications are awaited; a reserved matters consent for the original outline consent received at Appeal in 2019 for four houses on this Greenbelt site adjacent to the Thursley, Hankley & Frensham Commons Site of Special Scientific Interest and Special Protection Area. This latest submission required detailed architectural design for four prestigious houses, three of them earth sheltered and of contemporary design, with one traditional house, all designed to avoid 'harm' to the Greenbelt. Detailed landscape proposals of this 2.4 ha site were provided; Rummey Design acted as design and project co-ordinator for the applications. Second, based on the 2019 outline consent, a new application for four larger houses has been made. The issues related to the Greenbelt, Site of Special Scientific Interest, landscape character, Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and access have all required a refined approach so that architecture and landscape are combined to avoid 'harm'. Decision awaited September 2022.
Private House in Kent
Working with consultants Now Planning, Rummey Design has received planning consent for an extended private house, gardens and private drive in the Greenbelt and Conservation Area, south of Sevenoaks, Kent. This detailed consent required a sensitive approach to landscape and architecture in the curtilage of a Grade I Scheduled Monument and a Listed farmhouse, in a Conservation Area, together with traffic surveys and an archaeological watching brief to demonstrate no 'harm' in the Greenbelt.
